More Christmas Crafting - Felt Brooches

I found this delightful pattern over at Zakka Life (a great resource for felt inspiration) and couldn't resist making a couple into brooches for friends for Christmas....they were quick and seem to have gone down well.




PS This is my 250th post........look out for a giveaway in the near future (my 2nd blogiversary is coming up too!)

PPS I took my blog Christmas decorations down today - boohoo!

PPS Laila was the winner of my cross-stitch giveaway - yoohoo Laila!!

I love these little birds! I hadn't heard of the site you linked to. I don't get out much these days! Those birdies are so lovely and wantable for the felt loving nut that dwells within my skin!
